Josh’s Most Special Accomplishment

It is not as a business person, but as a father to his family of 7, that Josh believes is he greatest accomplishment. His family includes two very special little girls, currently 4- and 5-year-old half-sisters who have had a very challenging past. They complete Josh’s family of 7 and have a very special place in his heart.


Josh also gives special thanks to his biological children that have given up much to be a part of his family’s journey of helping others. “They have taught me more about life than all my world business experience could ever teach me. They are more important than any business deal I have done. Family first.”
